Happy Hump Day Zombies!
You may have noticed that I updated the blog banner (finally) for the first time in MONTHS! I am getting makeup fever once again and want to blog a lot more frequently. Cross your fingers for me. ;)
I'm excited about today's post. I have all 3 of the new (limited edition) Wet n Wild "Venice Beach" Color Icon eyeshadow palettes to show you today. I was able to find 2 of them at my local Walgreens and a friend sent me the 3rd because I wasn't able to find it in my city. Hooray for makeup friends. ;)
As the collection name suggests, all 3 of these palettes are summery and contain BRIGHT and happy colors. I, myself am picturing bathing suits in these colors and imaging the smells and sights of Venice Beach.

High Flying Colors
SO MUCH BRIGHT!! Let's move on to swatches, shall we?!
Boardwalk Boozing contains a matte bright yellow, shimmery silver, matte coral, shimmery purple, matte lime green, matte hot pink, shimmery yellow green, and a matte royal blue. My favorite color from Boardwalk Boozing is hand down the purple/blue shade in the top right. It's SO pigmented and smooth. It's an odd color in this palette as it doesn't necessarily go along with the color scheme, but I'm glad it's in there. Look how pigmented the colors are! Dat blue tho!
Hemporay Solutions contains a matte bright yellow, matte white, matte green, matte coral, shimmery lime green, matte hot pink, shimmery teal, and matte red. My favorite colors from Hemporary Solutions has to be the shimmery teal and the matte red. This palette has a lot of bold matte shades on the warmer side. Matte tomato red! WHAT?! Again, the colors are pigmented and easy to blend.
High Flying Colors
High Flying Colors contains a shimmery silver, shimmery baby pink, shimmery baby blue, matte fuchsia, shimmery peacock blue, shimmery lavender, matte royal blue, matte purple with a blue undertone. No lies, High Flying Colors is my favorite palette from this collection. I love the color scheme and the beautiful purples and the pinks and blues. I think if I were only able to purchase one palette from this collection, this would be the one. Again, all of the colors are rich, pigmented and easily blend-able.
I WILL warn you that the hot pinks in these palettes do stain, so make sure you wear a base under them. Also, there are a few "duplicate" colors from one palette to the next such as the matte yellow, shimmery silver, hot pinks, and the royal blue.
I'm very pleased with this collection. The last few color icon palettes I picked up from Wet n Wild left something to be desired, so I'm happy to see that the colors are just as pigmented outside of the palette as they are in the palette. Wet n Wild is typically sold in your local Walgreens, Walmart, and Kmart or online. Limited Edition items are not usually found on their website, however.
Have you been able to snag any of the palettes from the "Venice Beach" collection?
